markets broke down, who jump started our engine? barack obama! when america needed him most, who got us rolling again on the road to recovery? >> let me ask you this, people! who couldn't get laid in a whorehouse with a fist fun of hundreds? barack obama. >>> americans are hoping for a few magic moments during the debate. we thought it was fun to look backwards and talk about our favorite debate moments throughout history. experts disagree how much the debates affect the voters. there's no question they shape how we recommend the elections. we all thought about this and came up with a signature moment from debates past. i'll lead it off. i had a lot that came to my mind, but one stands out from 1992. bill clinton and george bush sr. and ross perot. it was the first die bait that year. the back story was george bush won the white house by sort of playing on patriotism themes. flag burns issues like this. really in my ways seemed to question dukakis's pati patriot. here comes bill clinton. he was at oxford during the vietnam war and participating in protests over there. george bush sr. on
of gravity? >> they're depending now on a barack obama implosion. the states are so big that they need obama to go down as they're going up. >> a lot to talk about today. let's say hi to ben la bolt. he is the national come pain manger here. we're hearing to hear from president mahmoud ahmadinejad at the u.n. when he starts speaking, we want to take part of that address. if we jump out, forgive me, but we want to make sure we get that. both sides are out with a new campaign ad, both featuring romney's 41% remarks. i want to get everybody up to speed. take a look. >> president obama and i both care about poor and middle-class families. the difference is my policies will make things better for them. we shouldn't measure compassion by how many people are on
the game a little bit while we are five weeks away from the big day. president obama is down-playing expectations big time. new jersey governor chris christie is predicting that that night will turn the election on its head. >> you saw the change this those polls happen very quickly and i'm here to tell you this morning it can happen very quickly back the other way, and i think the beginning of that is wednesday night. come thursday morning the entire narrative of this race is going to change. martha: no sub subtlety in new jersey. welcome t i'm martha maccallum. bill: i'm bill hemmer. bill: governor romney is going to practice in massachusetts before heading to cal. bold words from governor christie, are they shared by the candidate himself, john? >> reporter: not exactly bill. i don't quite know how to put it except that chris christie has never been known as a guy who likes to color inside the lines. you're supposed to raise expectations for your opponent while lore errin lowering them for your candidate. they say chris christie, is chris christie. the romney campaign is h
down by ten percentage points, president obama ahead on the economy, 6 in 10 voters, nearly 6 in 10, that is, said mitt romney's policies would favor the rich and mitt romney doesn't care about people like them. president obama's driving that message, going after mitt romney's predictions that he'll be tough on china saying that if you look at romney's record at bain capital, all that talk is fake. >> when you hear this newfound outrage, when you see these ads, these running problems seem to get tough on china, it seems a lot like that fox saying we need more secure chicken coops. i mean, it's just not credible. >> and larry, you can hear the confidence in president obama's voice because not only in ohio is he ahead, but in all of the major swing states president obama's got a lead right now. mitt romney's got to find a way to turn that around, turn it around in the debates, and maybe the tax cut issue that you're talking about will be one tool in that arsenal. back to you, larry. >> many thanks to john harwood. now for some reason on the trail today, mitt romney said he's going to
on drilling down on the cost -- insured, and now we're focused on drilling down on the cost. obama-care took care of everything at once. they're going to put policies in place. health insurance companies cannot get away with using 50% of their revenue for executive retreats or executive pay. i think 80% of the money they bring in has to be spent on provider care, but i would have to double check the numbers. host: let's but some other big picture numbers of the cost of the health care law from 2006- 2011 -- $9 billion was the price tag. dave joins us from massachusetts. good morning. caller: this is another way they're getting revenue from us, and a lot of people do not know about this, but it happened to my father. he was elderly, had an injury, and was on massachusetts' health care for a short time, and he had money in the stock market. he was not in the condition to know this stuff, but after he passed, they put a claim in for every penny that he had, and they started going after his house -- and i am sure this happens to a lot of elderly people. they think they have to be a massachusetts
and mitt romney. obama with a slight edge. 49-47%. but also in this survey, it delves down into the expectations game for this debate. what can you tell me about those numbers, peter? >> reporter: despite what chris christie said, and that is sort of another mixed message coming out of the romney campaign, romney is winning the expectations game if you look at the polls. more likely to win the debate, president obama 55%. mitt romney just 31% of likely voters expect him to win the debate. that's a good place to be for him going in there, but like you said, there's a lot of stuff in this poll. sort of mirrors what we've seen in a lot of recent national and state polls. president obama has advantages on a range of issues, however, one thing tilting in romney the direction. interesting numbers in the poll. which candidate are you confident will get the country back ton track economically? president obama, 47%. mitt romney, 51%. now, obama's had an edge on the economy in a lot of recent polls by a narrow one, two-point margin. not that much difference. interesting nonetheless m

not just to president obama but democrats up and down the ticket. he is in demand from all quarters of the country. and i just hope and pray that bill clinton will not only get out there every day over the next 40 some odd days, but he's there to help president obama and vice president biden with the debate preps. because i agree with erick, the debates are going to be crucial this election season. >> out on the campaign trail, erick, paul ryan, the republican vice presidential nominee, he's making some serious accusations against joe biden. but joe biden is responding. listen to what joe biden said today. >> for the previous eight years all the policies that congressman ryan voted for and governor romney said he supported, all those policies in a mere eight years, they doubled the national debt. they doubled the national debt from what they inherited in 2001. >> he's right on that because the debt was about $5 trillion when president bush took office, more than $10 trillion when he left office. i think he's referring to the two tax cuts that weren't paid for, the precipitation drug
republican strategist concedes president obama is ahead as september winds down and early voting opens. >> anybody that knows football knows that fourth quarter is where most of the action happens. october will be big and if romney has a good start to the month, we'll be fine. >> reporter: grubs was against making too much of the early rush. >> in 2010 democrats had the edge in early voting, as well. i can't tell you exactly what the edge was, but it was a significant edge and republicans still swept the state. it's a difference of strategy. if you put your money in the last three weeks or early voting. >> the gop sent the first early vote mailing just this week. >> can mitt romney and paul ryan count on your support this november election? excellent. and would you be interested in voting early this election? >> reporter: karen is credited with making the iowa gops 1 millionth voter call. >> i'm calling with a brief three-question survey with issues that matter to iowa. >> reporter: she is doing her part as republicans play early voting catchp. >> we're working hard here and rolling up
higher. >> so, sean, how high is the bar for governor romney? >> i see the folks from the obama campaign have talked down the expectations from the president so many days in a row, that today i expect them to come out and say that the president's got a fear of public speaking. i mean, these guys keep talking it down like, you know, it's going to be a blow-away. the fact is the president is the only one who's been on a one-on-one stage seven times-ish >> but you're doing the same thing. you're complaining about the democrats and you're doing the same thing. >> no, but i'm just -- the president is the only one who's actually been through a presidential debate. by all accounts i think the one thing that republicans and democrats can agree upon is the president is a gifted speaker. he has amazing rhetoric. he can go out there and wow a crowd. that is his strength. i will give him that. but i think there's a big difference between going out over and over again, and making promises, and having great rhetoric, and then having a record to -- to follow up on. i mean, that's where i think you're g

election season edition of "saturday night live." and in this sketch, president obama takes questions from the audience at a campaign rally in ohio while many voters down in the dumps over the job market watch the president look for something that they can all agree on. >> hi. i got laid off in 2009. i still haven't found a job. i don't want to vote for romney. but i really thought things would be better by now. >> real change takes more than one term. or even one president. i don't know if it will even happen in eight years. might take 12. frankly, i might be long dead. who here has a job? there we go. there we go. what do you do, sir? >> i'm a manager at burger king. >> and where were you four years ago, probably working the counter, right? >> i was a vice president for bank of america. >> oh, okay. the point is that today you're a manager at one of america's biggest companies. that's a success story. probably get free burgers, right? >> no one gets free burgers. actually, i had to fire a guy for eating one while eating on the clock. >> there you go. free brick. anyone else feel they're
. governor romney wants to lower tax rates by 20%, but he beat back today against charges from the obama campaign that he would give wealthy americans a huge tax cut while raising taxes on the middle class. >> i want to bring the rates down. by the way, don't be expecting a huge cut in taxes because i'm also going to lower deductions and exemptions. but by bringing rates down, we'll be able to let small businesses keep more of their money so they can hire more people. my priority is jobs, and i'll make it happen. [applause] >> reporter: and you heard in the first little bit of sound that you played there from governor romney, he said incomes are down, that's reinforced by a new report that came out just a couple of hours ago that shows household incomes declined again in august by 1.1%. overall during president obama's term, they are down 8.2% now. arthel: john, a lot of people think governor romney hurt himself with the 47% comment. how's he trying to battle back from that? >> reporter: yeah, it does look like he did some damage because his negatives are up. so what the romney campaign
-driven. it would be different if barack obama were down by five points. guest: i did not think we do a good job of getting into the middle of the country and talking to those folks. you're sitting in a studio. a poll comes across and now you have something that's right in front of you that you can talk about. because of budget cuts, you are not seeing the expense -- people are not spending the money to get people talking to people. guest: there are a relative handful of people that still go knocking on doors. you always learn something when you talk to voters. i think there should be more of that. guest: you are agreeing with me. host: let's hear from an independent caller, shirley. caller: it is nice to talk with you. i watch cnn and fox. one thing none have reported -- i got it on the internet. i am 80 years old. i was born during the wpa. i know -- i think our money has been spent foolishly in the white house. they have put a clamp on a story that came now. remember when mr. obama said stay out of mexico on spring break? his daughter took a dozen friends and 25 secret servicemen to mexico. t
that same red line if the iranians are going to back down. and you haven't heard the obama administration do that yet. is that the issue right now? >> well, as the prime minister said to the general assembly today, wolf, the drawing of the red line is designed to give diplomacy and sanctions more time to work. we believe by drawing that red line you won't be increasing the chances of military engagement, you'll be significantly lessening the chances of a military engagement because the iranians have been presented with red lines in the past in the straits of hormuz and they've backed down. we know they can see the color red. we're engaged in a conversation with the obama administration about setting limits to iran's enrichment process because that's the part of the iranian nuclear program that we can actually see and monitor. and that's the part that's in facilities that are observable and are still vulnerable. and so the obama administration's engaging with us in a dialogue about it. you mentioned that the secretary of state will be meeting with the prime minister this evening. the presiden

it down two or three points further, just stay on that let'keooat t a new obama campaign ad just put out a powerful ad airing in swing states that uses romney's own words against him. let's listen to this. >> there are 47% of the people who will vote for the president no matter what. whe ndup government, who believe that they're victims, who believe that government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they're entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you name it and they will vote for this president no matter what. and so my job is not to worry t e le i will never convince them they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives. >> what do you think of that ad, guys? you first, mark. >> you know, when the video first came out of governor romney talking, i wasn't sure if itould have a long shelf life, but it has a lot of resonance with voters, certainly has a lot of resonance with the chatteri class, and that ad is su, bu d -eyar think it's going to draw on the feelings that a lot of voters have and an awareness that a lot of voters have and partic

the top down by mitt romney. >> now, one of the things about barack obama that you know from having worked so closely with him is that sometimes he can be a little professorial, not to put down professors, but in a debate you have to think about the clock and think about the punchy line. is it a challenge for his current team to get him to speak in sound bites? >> well look, i used to joke with him it takes him 30 seconds to clear his throat sometimes. and look, i think -- look there's no doubt that, you know, you've got a very small window of time and brevity is certainly important and as i said earlier, andrea, the president hasn't done these formats in four years. mitt romney has done these pretty recently as part of 20 republican debates, but look, i have no doubt that the president will be well prepared and look, i don't actually think this debate is going to be decided by some snappy zinger or snappy sound bite. i think the american people, particularly the undecided voters that you, chris and mark were talking about, are really looking for these candidates to discuss what they want
going to win a single news cycle? >> i would argue more positive for obama and say he's doubled the stock market, he's taken the unemployment rate from double digits down to eight. if he does that again, he'll take it down to six. if you want to say i'll take it down two or three points further, just stay on that continu continuum. let's take a look at this. a new obama campaign ad just put out a powerful ad airing in swing states that uses romney's own words against him. let's listen to this. >> there are 47% of the people who will vote for the president no matter what. who are dependent upon government, who believe that they're victims, who believe that government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they're entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you name it and they will vote for this president no matter what. and so my job is not to worry about those people. i will never convince them they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives. >> what do you think of that ad, guys? you first, mark. >> you know, when the video first came ou

[ all talking at once ] >> people know that. >> swing voters? how does he get the swing voters? >> i think there are more swing votes than eleanor thinks. if you look at romney's 47% remark, it hurt and persuaded people the wrong way. the key thing is not just saying the president has failed it's convincing people that romney's program is better. people don't believe that yet. >> he has not put out any credible program. he talks in platitudes, and b
